Can Construct 2 make a match-3 game?

Hello,

I'm browsing for a game engine to use to make a Match 3 kind of game, like Candy Crush Saga. Construct 2 looks promising, I'm wondering if it is suited for making a game like this?

Presuming my goal is to build an exact clone of CCS (which it isn't, but the requirements are the same), can Construct 2 do things like neighbor detection, momentum for falling blocks, etc?

Bonus: Is there any open source code showing an example?


If this kind of game can be done, I'll start reading the manual for Construct 2!

Thanks,
- Anthony

Of course it can! I don't know about a sample, but I'm guessing with arrays, it could be done.

It's pretty much made for games like this. Just put in the learning and the hard work, and you can do it. A quick search of the manual would show you the things you asked about.
